    Disputing the Ethics of Research: The Challenge From Bioethics and Patient Activism to the Interpretation of the Declaration of Helsinki in Clinical Trials.Simon Woods & Pauline Mccormack - 2013 - Bioethics 27 (5):243-250.
    In this paper we argue that the consensus around normative standards for the ethics of research in clinical trials, strongly influenced by the Declaration of Helsinki, is perceived from various quarters as too conservative and potentially restrictive of research that is seen as urgent and necessary. We examine this problem from the perspective of various challengers who argue for alternative approaches to what ought or ought not to be permitted. Key themes within this analysis will examine these claims and argue (...)

    Respect for Persons, Autonomy and Palliative Care.Simon Woods - 2005 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 8 (2):243-253.
    .This paper explores some of the values that underpin health care and how these relate more specifically to the values and ethics of palliative care. The paper focuses on the concept of autonomy because autonomy has emerged as a foundational concept in contemporary health care ethics and because this is an opportunity to scratch the surface of this concept in order to reveal something of its complexity, a necessary precaution when applying the concept to the context of palliative care. The (...)

    Therapeutic Misconception: Hope, Trust and Misconception in Paediatric Research.Simon Woods, Lynn E. Hagger & Pauline McCormack - 2014 - Health Care Analysis 22 (1):3-21.
    Although the therapeutic misconception (TM) has been well described over a period of approximately 20 years, there has been disagreement about its implications for informed consent to research. In this paper we review some of the history and debate over the ethical implications of TM but also bring a new perspective to those debates. Drawing upon our experience of working in the context of translational research for rare childhood diseases such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy, we consider the ethical and legal (...)

    Best Interests: Puzzles and Plausible Solutions at the End of Life. [REVIEW]Simon Woods - 2008 - Health Care Analysis 16 (3):279-287.
    This paper argues that the concept of best interests in the context of clinical decisions draws on concepts rooted in the philosophical discipline of axiology. Reflection on the philosophical origins enables a distinction to be drawn between those interests related to clinical goals and those global interests that are axiological in nature. The implication of this distinction is most clearly seen in the context of end of life decisions and it is argued here that greater weight ought to be given (...)

    Users’ Views of Palliative Care Services: Ethical Implications.Simon Woods, Kinta Beaver & Karen Luker - 2000 - Nursing Ethics 7 (4):314-326.
    This article is based on the findings of a study that elicited the views of terminally ill patients, their carers and bereaved carers on the palliative care services they received. It explores the range of ethical issues revealed by the data. Although the focus of the original study was on community services, the participants frequently commented on all aspects of their experience. They described some of its positive and negative aspects. Of concern was the reported lack of sensitivity to the (...)

    A Theory of Holism for Nursing.Simon Woods - 1998 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 1 (3):255-261.
    In this paper it is argued that nurses should be holists whilst at the same time accepting that ‘holism’ is a contentious concept. One of the problems for a supporter of holism is that of which holism -- an attempt to outline the version of holism advocated is made by identifying only two versions of holism: The Strong theory and the Pragmatic theory of holism. By introducing this device it is hoped to avoid, if only by stipulation, some of the (...)
